Learning to paint can be a solitary activity. But what you need the most is some positive feedback on your work. That’s why I’ve set up the gallery page. For you to share and to support each other.

Fortnightly Featured Gallery Painting

Every fortnight I select a painting uploaded to the gallery to feature here on the homepage- a painting with something really positive we can take from it!
